Spring is officially upon us and it’s the perfect time to get some cleaning done. If your workspace still looks like a tornado hit it, it might be time to declutter. A cluttered space can make you feel overwhelmed and stressed, not to mention how it can affect your productivity. Before we head into the summer months, now is a perfect time to clean it up, toss it out, and get busy. But before you begin the great purge, have a plan using these six hacks from our full service commercial junk removal service in Augusta!
The One-Minute Rule
It’s simple: if a task takes less than one minute to complete, do it immediately. Don’t let it pile up and avoid having a giant mess on your hands. This can apply to anything from throwing away a piece of trash to filing a document. Trust me, it may be a small step but it will make a world of difference.
Avoid the Chair
Have you ever noticed that your chair is a dumping ground for everything? Clothing, bags, paperwork, you name it. Well, it’s time to put an end to that. If your chair isn’t in use, simply move it out of the way. It will make you think twice before dumping things on it again.
The Five-to-One Rule
For every five items you bring to your desk, get rid of one. This may not seem like a lot, but it will help you get rid of unnecessary clutter. It’s easy to accumulate pens, papers, and other office supplies that you don’t even need. Get rid of what you can and watch your space transform.
The Ten-Minute Challenge
Set your timer for ten minutes and try to get as much done as possible. Declutter your space as much as you can before the timer goes off. It will feel like a fun challenge and you’ll be surprised at how much you can accomplish in that short amount of time.
The Filing System
It’s time to get a filing system in order. Create a system that works for you and will make it easy to find what you need. Invest in some folders, labels, and a filing cabinet. Keep up with the system and watch your space transform.
The 24-Hour Rule
If you’re feeling like you don’t have time for a proper declutter, just get rid of anything that’s been sitting on your desk or chair for 24 hours. Chances are, if it’s been sitting there for a day, you don’t need it. It’s quick and easy and will help you get rid of any unnecessary clutter.
